Curaçao offers some very interesting and tasty products. Today you will learn about and sample some of them.
Head to the heart of the historical Scharloo district in the city center. Scharloo is the historical former Jewish Quarter of Willemstad and boasts many beautifully-restored mansions that are part of a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is here that a group of local artists, artisans, craftsmen and historians have joined forces to form the Nos Kos (Our Thing) initiative. Their artwork is sold at a pop-up market in Leyba Park. Admire the work and feel free to purchase a memento if you wish. You might also want to photograph the magnificent mural created by a popular Curaçao artist.
At the Aloe Vera Farm, a local guide will tell you about the plantation, the farm and the healing effects of aloe vera. You will see the process of extracting the aloe juice from the plant and in the shop you can purchase products containing this natural product if you wish.
Your next stop is at Chobolobo mansion -- the original distillery for Blue Curaçao liqueur. The machinery on site is still used today to make the delicious range of Curaçao drinks, and your guide will tell you how the distillation process works. You will also have a chance to taste it for yourself. There is a shop where you can buy the liqueurs, which make a fun and multi-colored souvenir.
Your tour ends with a panoramic drive through Willemstad's city center, past fascinating buildings and colorful mansions built in the old Dutch colonial style. From the bridge, take in the perfect view over the harbor and the city center.
Minimum age to sample liqueur is 21 years.
